Hugh, I am working on the standard Show Planes tip over now. The kit is very complete and straight forward. I can only really answer your second question though. There has been some dissassembly but it was very simple. The cockpit rail dissassembly took about an hour to complete. I drilled off the rivet heads only, then popped the rails off and lightly punched the rivet shafts out of the holes. Use an undersized bit for the rivet head removal and be sure you in the center of the rivet. I prepunched all the rivet heads with an auto center punch to get a good divot. he helped me prevent wormholing the bit. I also have a small Souix palm dirll that has very precise speed control, which also helped.
The hardest part for me was step one - cutting up your newly built vertical stabilizer! Once you make that cut, the rest is easy.
